Here is a quick and easy little treat for last minute gifting…a mason jar filled with all the dry ingredients already measured out to make a batch of homemade cookies!
You know you have too many mason jars when you have to keep clearing out cupboards to make more room for them all…anyone else have that problem?!
So here is my cute jar gift…I have a printable Project Sheet complete with the recipe card below so that you can easily make one of your own…
Oh how I love making this type of goodie…it combines my love of cooking…with my love of papercrafting…and my mason jar addiction LOL!!!
So this is really easy to make – I found a great recipe over at www.lilluna.com – and you basically layer each of your dry ingredients straight into that mason jar – I used a wide mouth quart jar and a canning funnel to make this super easy – you can find those funnels in big box stores for around $3…
Once your jar is filled, pop the lid on and you can then get to decorating it!
The lid…I used a piece of ‘starry night’ paper from Happy Haunting DSP and used my 2 1/2″ Circle Punch to cut it to size…and around the band of the lid I wrapped around a piece of Basic Black 3/8 Stitched Satin Ribbon.
The trim…I wrapped a piece of Silver Sequin Trim around the top of the jar and tied it together using a piece of Silver Cording Trim and finished in a bow. I then added the sparkly BOO! words that I die cut from a piece of Black Glimmer Paper using a die from Boo to You Framelits…
The owl…isn’t he gorgeous? He is a stamp that you can find in the stamp set Howl-O-ween Treat and guess what? There is a perfectly co-ordinating die for him in that Boo to You Framelits pack so cutting him out is easy!
The back of the jar…I printed out the list of ingredients in the jar and extras needed along with the directions on a piece of cardstock and that is held onto the jar using a piece of Silver Cording Trim that I wrapped around the center and secured under the owl (the directions are on the back of this piece of paper)…
That way the lucky person who is getting this gift doesn’t have to hunt to find out how to make em!
